After seeing (500) Days of Summer again, I have come to a truly important revelation. Tom Hansen is the reel Ted Mosby.
Think about it. They're both wannabee architects. They both love to provide you with all the random trivia they know about buildings. They both ardently believe in L-O-V-E, even after they get their heartbroken. They both fall for brunette girls who are commitment-phobes, at least until they meet the right - and most likely blonde (see: Summer's rando light-haired hubby and Robin's new-found love Barney) guys. They both love indie music and can be rather snobby about it. They both have perfectly tousled brunet man-dos. They both have best buddies who got married to their first girlfriends (Marshall on HIMYM and Paul in (500) Days) . They both love the fine art of karaoke (Did you know it's Japanese for empty orchestra? Isn't that hauntingly beautiful?). They both have experience forging relationships via elevator shafts. And most importantly, they both look smashing in blazers.
Okay, so I may have gone a bit overboard with this whole comparison. But come to think of it, being the ridiculously introspective and analytical boys that they are, Ted and Tom would totally approve.
P.S. - Is anyone else hopelessly in love with (500) Days?
